Everything was fine up to that point. We need to find a different
restaurant. (The food was fine, just not to my 'taste')

I've given several talks over the years at various groups. I recently
did a very short notice talk on current, a project I've been working on
for over a year written completely in python.

The focus of that talk to trilug was what is current, how it works etc.
For tri-zpug, we'd want to focus more on 

writing complex systems in python
reverse engineering things in python
xmlrpc usage in python
client - server
data storage not in SQL

What do you guys want? Is this at all interesting?
